We will keep fighting for all libraries - stand with us!
A recovering paleontologist and sometime historian, Rob Cox is head of special collections at UMass Amherst, having previously held positions at the University of Michigan (where he received his PhD in history) and the American Philosophical Society. Having written on topics ranging from talking to the dead to Lewis and Clark and Quaker-Seneca relations, his most recent books include a trilogy on New England culinary history [we have enjoyed his talks on chowder and cranberries] and, quite separately, the history of sleep.
To help launch this new book, the Amherst Historical Society is hosting a talk and book signing by Dr. Cox on October 9 at 12:15 and part of its History Bites lunchtime lecture series.
